Hi guys! I wanted to share my new online skillshare class: Character Concept Art: from thumbnail to final design.

I've teamed up with skillshare to bring you guys a class all about character concept art. There are videos and a complete project guide to guide you through the steps, from initial thumbnails right through to the finished article. I'll talk about brushes, thumbnails, posing, refining, detail, texture, what clients expect: pretty much everything I can stuff in there. I'm in the midst of putting this together and I'm being as thorough as possible to really try and give you a good sense of how I do what I do. 

A little extra info: The classes consist of various short videos explaining the steps behind the character concept work and there is a written project guide to accompany the class. It's not a live event so you can watch whenever you want to. You can submit your work into the student gallery so other members of the class can discuss the work and give feedback if they wish to. I myself will be looking at the work but I'm won't be providing individual feedback for everyone who takes part. It's a self initiated project. 

The class is currently open for enrollment and will be released on the 8th October. For those of you who sign up early there's an extra 10% discount with the code ERLYBRD

If this class goes well I plan on putting more together in the future explaining other techniques :)

This sounds awesome. I LOVE character concepts and really want to get better with them.  How does a class like this work?  I've never done a class that wasn't part of school.  Are the videos and info only available for a certain amount of time or will it always be open after enrolling?

Hey Charlie! I enrolled as well and put out the word via my journal here on DA, on FB, and to the Painting Drama folks over at the Oatley Academy as well. Hope I get you some bites ! I'm looking forward to learning more about your process. Thanks for granting us such an affordable opportunity as well!

Just enrolled. Not too sure about how this works, though.
And I couldn't find the answer anywhere, but the 20$ is for the whole class, or only one stage?

$20 is the price of the 4 classes or that's just the price for the first one?

If that's so I would appreciate to know the price of the other classes as well (if all of them are $20 or if the cost increases per class)?

My class consists of one project which includes a minimum of four short videos and a project guide to accompany it. So $20 for everything!

RealNoir13 Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Cool!
You said a minimum because there's some additional content to access?

PD: I was about to enroll myself, yet the button says now "Enroll $29". Is this an error or the price just got higher?
